My students need electric fans and powerstrips to keep our classroom cool enough for learning!
My school is located in an urban area. The school has an estimated enrollment of 400 students for the 2017-2018 school year in grades TK-5, with fifteen classrooms. Additionally, we house a state pre-K program. 92.5% of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and 48% are English Language Learners. 46% of the students are Latino, 35% are African-American, 10% are Asian, and 3% are Filipino.
The school has established a culture of continuous school improvement and has a team of teachers, parents, and administrators who are committed to creating the best possible learning environment for students.
Teachers meet weekly for a sixty minute period during the workday in their professional learning community to analyze student performance data, set goals, and share instructional strategies. These teacher teams follow a developed agenda and use protocols and defined roles to manage the meetings. These meetings are my school's cornerstone for building a professional learning community and improving student achievement.
Our school building has no air conditioning. Often, my classroom temperature climbs to the upper nineties. It is difficult for students to learn when they are trying to keep the sweat out of their eyes. I've purchased some fans for my room on my own, but it is not enough to make the space cool enough for learning.
The students at our school deserve a comfortable, safe place to learn, and these fans will help us to provide just that!
I teach Mathematics, and all students in the school cycle through my classroom. Please help us to provide an environment where they can concentrate on fractions, algebra, and multiplication without constantly having to keep the sweat out of their eyes!
